BENEFITS...Keeps the oil out of the intake and turbo. If you gonna run an intercooler, it will keep oil out of the intercooler and that helps keeping boots from blowing off.

HARM... just to the ozone and your nose of your sensitive to funny smells. I just ran my hose to the rear of the frame and down the sway bar links. Some people use a catch can and a breather to keep from running hose along the frame and to catch any oil drips from it. I've had mine on for at least 2 years and no oil drips from the CCV hose.(lots of other drips to look at )

I'm gathering parts to do my DIY intake now. Part of my new setup will do away with the aluminum piece that has the CCV in it.

I bought the upgrade for my air intake hose (going into the turbo part # F81Z-9C681-BA which is for a 99-03 YM truck). I'll delete the aluminium center section and run a piece of 4" exhaust pipe (painted of course) straight into my new 6637ish filter. I'll do the CCV mod and install my new intake and listen to the new sounds of my turbo.

Enjoy!

I did this, its not hard at all,not sure it really adds anything, just keeps oil and stuff from blowing back through your intake and turbo , that stuff will ruin intake boots!!!!!!!!
I did mine at the same time I did the 10k mod ,map sensor switch,and fpr shim and it only took maybe 5-10 mins. (i had to hunt down tools that got misplaced)

There are no odors or mess if you do this mod correctly. Running a hose out the back isn't the correct way. Also doing this mod wrong can turn your stroker into a oil fountain, they are very sensitive to back pressure. Check your PM's for how to do this mod correctly. It is one of the mods I would perform on every 7.3!!

so to do this mod you delete the aluminum intake part that has the 2 holes in it (i think it has 2 holes? maby 1) and just clamp rubber hoses to the holes on the cc and run your hoses to where?

You just turn the plastic cover around and run the hose (make it longer) down behind the engine!
